What do I need to prepare before the start of the video consultation?
While not mandatory, it is advisable to prepare the following items for the consultation:

- Weighing scale (if available)
How can the vet diagnose my pet’s medical condition through a video consultation?
An experienced and qualified vet can still diagnose common non-urgent illnesses during a video consultation. They typically do so by assessing your pet’s medical history, current symptoms and by talking with you.
If the vet feels that your pet’s condition requires further investigation, he or she will advise you to bring your pet to a clinic or hospital for a physical consultation.
Our platform does not cater to emergency conditions; such cases require urgent medical attention at the nearest veterinary hospital or clinic. Our vets are trained to identify urgent cases which are not suitable for video consultations. They will review each case to assess whether it is suitable to carry out the consultation.
What happens if the vet determines that my pet’s condition is unsuitable?
Pawlyclinic has a network of established affiliate and partner vet practices to deliver comprehensive in-clinic care to pets.Hence, if your pet’s condition is not suitable for a teleconsultation, you can simply bring your pet to our affiliate or partner clinic for an in-clinic consultation and have the teleconsultation fee offset against the total in-clinic bill if you do so within 48 hours. Please note that after-hours surcharge for the teleconsultation, if any, would not be offset against the total in-clinic bill.Your attending vet will advise you accordingly during the teleconsultation.

Can I reschedule my appointment?
You may reschedule your teleconsultation appointment by cancelling the current one and then rebooking it at your new preferred time. You will not be charged for the cancelled appointment if you cancel it ahead of time.
The vet has cancelled my appointment! What should I do?
We regret that the vet has cancelled your appointment - this usually happens when they have an unexpected scheduling conflict arising from their in-clinic duties. Please be assured that you will not be charged for the cancelled appointment - the refund will be processed within 7 business days.
